I think the interesting question is who's going to "guard" LeBron.

My preference would have been to start Wright, have him guard Lebron, and put Hedo on Parker. Hedo stays fresh, Wright's offense is not needed, so he can expend his energy chasing Lebron around all night.

good question.

If it's DeRozan, i can see Lebron trying to exploit that matchup based on the fact that DD is a rookie - plus i can just see any ticky tack foul being called in Lebron's favor, again because DD is a rookie.

Does anyone have any info on Reggie Evans? His injury sounded pretty serious. Any idea how long he's going to be out?

nobody guards or stops LeBron
all you can do is force him to take outside shots and hope he misses and close the passing lanes

Agree. The best of them guarding LeBron was Bruce Bowen

I hope Wright starts over DeRozan, but I doubt that will happen. Hopefully we can make some defensive stops and win this thing tonight

My god! The guy played a total of 20 minutes in the pre-season and was awful. Not only that, he just came off having the flu. Starting him would be just for the sake of starting him and would be stupid!

No way in hell should Wright be starting, plus isn't it always said in here that it doesn't matter who starts but but who finishes. Because either way Derozan will play fairly limited minutes (start or not).

I'm good with the active roster but I expect as soon as Weems & Evans are healthy they should be placed on the active list....Or I would actually send Weems to the D-league & get him some major PT.
